Fifty years ago today one of the world's most recognizable film actors, Boris Karloff, passed away. I still remember the morning my Dad told me the news. It was devastating to this 14-year old Monster Kid.
Karloff touched millions of fans across the world and his influence on popular culture is inestimable. From the Frankenstein monster to the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, both Karloff's face and his voice were featured in hundreds of films, radio, and TV shows.
Today, we celebrate his legacy.
